Re: Recorder advice

Hey Glenn,

It's the [M] Motorway (thee lanes either way, extra near-side safety lane
(aka "hard shoulder") on each side, barrier down the middle, supposedly a
70MpH speed limit (LMAO)) which runs pretty much from London, England, west
until it meets and goes around the south coast of Wales (a different
country, with no border, clinging like a mollusk to the west coast of England)

Wales is mostly sheep and a few people who speak a weird gaelic dialect
which has too many consecutive l's and no vowels worth mentioning. Very
pretty, very void - just avoid the locals. The people like Rugby (think
american football without all that pads and helmets), male-voice choirs and
the idea that "welsh" is a useful language. And are alleged (mostly in
british humour) to fornicate with the ovine inhabitants of their otherwise
barren and hilly country-side.

Nos da

BC
